Some legacy projects of Governor Obaseki in Edo that has cast his name in gold

Some people with lying spirits say Mr. Governor has done nothing. Well, I have taken the time to catalog the legacy projects the the governor has done and completed since he entered government house.

Edo School of Nursing Sciences

The revamping of Edo State College of Nursing Sciences is one of  Governor Godwin Obaseki's landmark projects. The school was moribund with decayed infrastructure and facilities for many years before the Governor assumed office. Through several administrations before the current Governor, the school was left to rot with a very underpaid and poorly motivated staff. Facilities to make learning conducive and optimal were absent. 

This was the reason why His Excellency Mr Godwin Obaseki made it a focal point of his manifesto to rebuild, restructure, retool and restaff the school to a status befitting for human learning.

He quickly mobilized contractors to the site and today a visit to the school will afford one a beautiful view with an aesthetically pleasing environment  as well as adequate infrastructure conducive for study. Before now, the school couldn't boast of a functional laboratory. The Governor ensured that the best laboratory was built with quality equipments, workstations,  reagents and a demonstration room replete with beddings and other hospital paraphernalia. 

The Governor also restaffed the institution and brought in the best brains to serve in management. This would ensure that the school quickly gained accreditation from the relevant bodies and in no time the school was authorized to take in students. As I write, the school is now functional with students learning in an optimal environment. 

Benin Central Park

The newly commissioned Benin Central Bus Terminal and Park is a magnificent edifice built by Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki and it is capable of accommodating about 700 buses at any given time. The project was commissioned yesterday, 10th March, 2022 by the People's Democratic Party National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu. 

Yet again, Governor Godwin Obaseki has shown deep foresight in building this state of the art facility aimed at ensuring seamless commute of passengers across the state. This facility coupled with the new designated bus stops at various routes is sure bringing sanity to the state's public transportation system.

The Masterpiece called the Edo State Secretariat can report that with the new looks and aesthetics of the Edo State Secretariat, it can truly be called a masterpiece. The Edo State Secretariat building is a multi story building in heart of Benin City rebuilt by His Excellency Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki. Each building has more than 7 floors. The foundation works started in the Late Brigadier General Samuel Ogbemudia administration but was abandoned for over 40 years by previous administrations. The new buildings provide a conducive environment for Edo workers to work in a conducive environment for optimum productivity. The project is part of Governor Godwin Obaseki Civil Service Reforms.

Yet again, Governor Godwin Obaseki has shown deep foresight in building this state of the art facility aimed at ensuring seamless commute of passengers across the state. This facility coupled with the new designated bus stops at various routes is sure bringing sanity to the state's public transportation system.


Education is a key driver of national development and societal growth all over the world. Godwin Obaseki, the current governor of Edo State, is well aware of this.

Obaseki introduced the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation – Edo BEST – in April 2018 to revamp basic education in the state.
The program’s goal was to improve the learning outcomes for 300,000 children. The students were drawn from Edo State’s 1,500 public primary and junior secondary schools. To accomplish this, the government made significant investments in educational technology.

The program was launched with the goal of retraining and supporting all 15,000 government teachers, both new and experienced.
Teachers were given tablets, while principals were given smartphones to track daily attendance. The tablets are pre-loaded with digital lesson plans for each day’s lessons.

Revolutionary Revenue Collection From Transporters

For decades, Nigeria has devolved into a country where the responsibility of collecting government levies from citizens is delegated to shady characters, touts, or politicians’ cronies.
The collection of levies from commercial motorists is a multibillion-naira industry in Nigeria’s major cities.

55MW CCTEC Ossiomo Power Plant

Edo State, which has a population of approximately 4 million people, receives approximately 88MW of electricity. This is far from meeting the increasing demand for electricity for residential and commercial purposes.

Governor Obaseki recognizes the importance of a reliable power supply in promoting businesses, driving industrialization, and increasing productivity.

Governor Obaseki signed a 55MW Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Ossiomo Power and CCETC Clean Energy to change the narrative of poor power supply (CCETC-Ossiomo Power).


Governor Godwin Obaseki established the Edo State Geographic Information Service on August 1, 2017. (EDOGIS).

EDOGIS is the government agency that replaced the former Ministry of Lands and Surveys (later known as Lands Bureau).

The new “Digital Certificate of Occupancy” is a computerized process that was set up to secure land assets of Edo State residents.

The agency is the only digital repository in the state for all registered landed properties and subsequent transactions. It also keeps and archives electronic and physical copies of all transactions submitted for registration, making it easier to conduct historical searches on all registered properties in the state.

The Edo Fertilizer and Chemical Company

The Edo State Fertilizer and Chemical Company Limited was reactivated by the Godwin Obaseki-led government in collaboration with the Wacot Group of Companies (ESFCCL).
The fertilizer plant was built 14 years ago but never used.

The Governor stated that the goal of revitalizing the plant is to make the state self-sufficient in food production and to provide farmers with fertilizer at reasonable prices.
The fertilizer plant will also improve the state’s socioeconomic status and provide an opportunity for young people to benefit from the expertise of major players in the agriculture sector.


Edo Modular and Refinery Company Limited

The Edo Modular and Refinery Company Limited is one of Obaseki’s many ongoing legacy projects.

AIPCC Energy Limited owns the refinery. The company is a collaboration between AFCOM and China’s Peiyang Chemical Equipment Company (PCC).
It was founded through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Edo State Government, as well as local and international private investors.
The Chinese consortium consists of Peiyang Chemical Equipment Company of China (PCC), a world-leading modular refinery company; Sinopec International Petroleum Service Corporation (SIPS), a subsidiary of Sinopec, the world’s largest chemical conglomerate; and African Infrastructure Partners (AIP), a Nigerian infrastructure company.
The refinery’s capacity is expected to be 5500 barrels of crude oil per day.
Gelegele Port

The construction of a seaport is part of the government of Godwin Obaseki’s efforts to industrialize Edo State.

The state government accomplished this by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a Chinese company. This was done in order to help the development of Gelegele Seaport.
China Harbour Engineering Company, China’s largest infrastructure company, will lead the development of the seaport under the terms of the MoU..

Benin Industrial Park

The most common complaint that businesses have about Nigeria is a lack of first-rate infrastructure and services.

Governor Godwin Obaseki initiated the development of the Benin Enterprise Park in response to this complaint.

Benin Technical College revamp

Rehabilitation and reconstruction of 5 blocks of the Edo State Secretariat

We have deliberately not included the numerous road projects of the Governor because if we begin, our readers might not be able to finish reading the long list for more than 24 hours. šŸ˜
